We belong to God and one another.

1Pe 2:9  But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.

Before we knew the Lord we dwelt in darkness. We were called out of that darkness into the marvelous light of Christ Himself. In darkness we were not a chosen generation, we were a condemned people. Now in the light of Christ we are His chosen generation. In darkness we were no priests, yet now in His marvelous light we are royal priests in a royal priesthood. In darkness we did not belong to God, yet in His light we are now His peculiar people. That does not mean we are odd or strange, it means we are purchased and privileged, we are exclusively His. And by virtue of belonging to God we have been called to publish and to celebrate the one to whom we belong. The words “shew forth,’ is ex-ang-el’-lo. We are His angels so to speak, His messengers, called to go forth and praise Him and tell the world of the glory of God who called us.

Brother, sister. This is who your are. The devil himself will come against you with a fury when you walk in your true identity. That word we hear so much about today, identity, so much lies surround it in regard to gender and so on, the truth of that is self evident and needs no elaboration. The real battle lies in the true identity of the saints. We indeed changed identities. We were once dead in sin and now we are alive in Christ. We once dwelt in darkness with no heavenly purpose, now we dwell in His marvelous light with a singular eternal purpose. We have been called out to “shew forth,’ His praises. To noise abroad His glory. To shout from the rooftops of His majesty. To witness to a dying world the Kingdom of God and its King. We once walked in our unholiness and now we walk in His holiness. And as we walk in such light, as He is in the light then we shall have fellowship with others of the light. We are one, brothers and sisters as He and the Father are one, and in that we behold His glory.
